Costs are dependent on the location of the training (as travel time and accommodation may need to be included ) but start from £150 for a “twilight” session . For more than 10 learners there will generally be extra costs for materials or a copy of the session notes can be sent in advance for copying by the commissioning organisation. Certificated courses incur extra costs dependent upon the course. Petrol costs are additional at £0.45 per mile outside of a 15-mile radius of Hartlepool, Teesside where I am based.
